24V Power Panel ?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
This is copy of post I submitted on the Large Engine forum. Maybe someone here also has some input.

I figure some of you in this larger engine section would have some easy input for me. I have recently upgraded to a gas (US41) engine which came with a plane I bought. I have a serious problem with hand starting and really dislike the spring starter system with the engine. I guess I value my hands and fingers too much. My 12V starter does not start the motor but a 24V easily turns it over and nicely starts it. I would however like to have a 24V power panel. Does anyone know of one or should I just rig up my own? I would think that hooking up a regular pwr panel to 24V source would mess up the rest of the outlets so I can't see that being an option. Many Thanks.

What are you using for a 24Volt source.. 2 12 Volt batteries in series. If so I would give this a try
A: Install a second set of Banana plugs into your power panel and label them 24 Volts.. Wire these directly to the batteries to give you 24 volts. The connect a Power Panel to one of the 12 Volt cells. This would give you all the features of the power panel, including a plugs for a 12 volt starter and your new 24V plugs.

If you are not sure what I'm talking about, LMK and I'll post a drawing.
